Islanders Game Day Updates 9\/17\/13
9:45: Group that's headed to Calgary hits the ice for morning skate in Regina, SK.

9:52: Some photos of the Calgary group getting started.

10:15: Calgary group is all off the ice after a quick, jam-packed skate.

10:20: Kyle Okposo, on getting to see some game action: "I'm excited. It'll be nice to get things going. We've got some practice under our belt, and we're hoping for a better showing than the last time we were in Calgary for a preseason game."

Okposo, on the hectic schedule today with this today's flight to and from Calgary for the game: "It's going to be a little different obviously, getting off the plane and going right to the rink to play a game. You just have to adjust. We've all done it at some point in our careers, and you just have to play hard."

10:40: Players, coaches and staff headed for Alberta are boarding the bus. We'll resume updates once we get to Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.

5:00: Team has arrived in Calgary. Getting settled in here at the arena.

5:45: Some photos of Scotiabank Saddledome. This place survived an epic flood back in June, and crews have been working around the clock to make the building functional since then.

This hallway was completely underwater, and then some. The players will be walking out from here in less than three hours.
